Veteran James eyes 1m Spurs escape route to boost his World Cup hopes

Tottenham are leading the chase to sign Portsmouth goalkeeper David James for £1million in January, handing the England stopper a World Cup boost. James, 39, is battling to assert his position as England's number one ahead of the World Cup finals in South Africa next year and fears Pompey's position at the bottom of the Premier League could affect his chances of claiming the jersey. Familiar faces: Harry Redknapp wants David James or Blackburn's Paul Robinson Redknapp, who was James' boss at Fratton Park until his move to White Hart Lane, is expected to make the move for James after being told he has no chance of luring Blackburn's Paul Robinson back to Spurs, according to The Sun. The Tottenham boss hopes a new keeper will boost his team's hopes of breaking into the Premier League's top four and the £1m price tag could drop if Pompey bag Spurs' reserve gloveman Carlo Cudicini as pasrt of the deal.
